Welcome and thank you for visiting my profile.
I am a qualified counsellor and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) .
Sometimes whatever your age, it is hard to talk to family and friends about what you are going through and how it makes you feel. Bottling things up can be draining and exhausting. The counselling room is a place to offload, get a distinct perspective,gain better understanding of issues and make positive choices for your future.
As a Person-Centred counsellor, I aim to offer a safe, secure and a non-judgemental space for you to explore issues and feelings and find better ways of moving forward.
I aim to work alongside you in a confidential way, listening carefully,reflecting back and clarifying confusion. This process helps you find the resources within yourself to make changes and come to terms with those things that you cannot change.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
